I wouldn't call that a limitation. That's how the product is designed to work.
Go through this page, including the examples: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/February2018/Content/ReportsDevelopment/Static-dynamic-filters.htm
I suspect you are ending up with an empty result set because different filters at different levels are filtering for different values on the same Field. Filters on the same Field at different levels result in only the common values being returned (intersection), which could well be none.
From one example in on the page linked to:
- Task filter: Country = Italy
- User filter: -
- Report filter: Country = Germany
- Resulting filter: empty
If you don't find your answer there you will need to give us more explicit details.

thanks Daniel . For you inputs.
here is my scenario is i have 4 base tables.
based on that 4 tables were created. now i am creating filters for each table
Customer Customer Category Location Month Type Seats Finance RC India Apr 2017 Ac 10 Finance LE US Apr 2017 Pl 20 Finance Pro Uk May 2017 Ac 30
so here am creating filter
Customer Category= RC,LE,Pro ..........like 8 values
same for other tables also. with different column names.
Sorry Chanty, but that is not enough information to even start guessing what the issue might be. You will need to be far more detailed than that.
* The definition of each filter being applied (all of them). Filter name, Fields & Values
* Level that they are applied at (Task, Report, User, etc.)
* Relevant table definitions (Field/Column names)
I agree with Daniel. Maybe you can try by adding a single filter at a time and run a preview to understand when the result starts to be empty and investigate the filter that cause the issue.
